Fodder availability is a bottleneck for development of the lowlands of Ethiopia. Fodder scarcity limits the development of the pastoralist economy, increases vulnerability to droughts, enlarges the risk of conflict and affects food security. However, more, and better fodder can be produced through a wide range of approaches. This video explains how fodder availability can be improved through sustainable rangeland management, soil and water management practices and through promoting a value chain around fodder.
